Instant Fall Coffee Hack

A little something we like to call "autumn in a mug."

Nothing says autumn like curling up on the couch and sipping on a warm cup of freshly brewed coffee. There's a slight chill in the air; our television somehow finds itself on Hallmark Channel instead of the morning news. Sounds pleasant, hm?

There's a fall-tastic coffee hack that's been brewing right under your nose, and it totally changes the game. Imagine the whole house is practically bug-bombed with the sweet aroma of autumn and your coffee is flush with the flavors of fall. Sounds next-level, right?

Start with a base of one-half teaspoon of cinnamon, one-fourth teaspoon of nutmeg, and one-eighth teaspoon of allspice. If you're brewing more than three coffee pods or making an extra-large pot of coffee, increase the ratio by 50 percent.

For coffee pot users: The secret lies in the grounds. Coffee grounds. You're going to add a trio of fall spices to your coffee before you hit the brew button. Sprinkle each spice onto the top of your grounds (already snug inside the filter!), and give it all a little toss and stir before hitting brew. Then get ready for the best cup of coffee ever.

For Keurig brewers: You're going to add a trio of fall spices to your cup before you hit the brew button and then wait until you start smelling the crazy-divine aroma wafting from your brewer. Allow the coffee to pour into the cup and stir when complete. Surprise: It's fall in a mug!

We've even been tweaking the recipe to create all sorts of fabulous fall-inspired flavors, which you'll find below. Get to brewing!

For pumpkin spice coffee: Start with a base of one-half teaspoon of cinnamon, one-fourth teaspoon of nutmeg, one-eighth teaspoon of ground ginger, and the smallest dash of ground cloves. Cloves can be overpowering, so feel free to leave them out if you have a sensitive palate. This brew has autumn written all over it.

For mocha coffee: Start with a base of one tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder, and add one-half teaspoon of cinnamon if desired. This brew will transition right into Christmastime. Hint: Add a splash of peppermint extract (in lieu of cinnamon) to make peppermint-mocha coffee.
